(Newser) – Nicole Kidman “desperately” wanted another baby, she told Australia's 60 Minutes last night. “Anyone that's been in the place of wanting another child, or wanting a child, knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss that you go through trying and struggling with fertility … I couldn't get pregnant,” she said, explaining why she and husband Keith Urban chose to have daughter Faith via a gestational carrier.

"She was the most wonderful woman to do this for us. ... I'm so grateful to her,” said Kidman of their carrier. The actress was in the room for Faith’s birth, and said it was a “deeply emotional and moving” moment. (Click to read why Jennifer Aniston is jealous of Nicole Kidman.)
